March is National Social Work Month: Bridget Crawford

Meet Bridget Crawford. Bridget attended the University of West Florida and received her bachelor’s in social work. She is a Kinship Specialist at NWF Health Network. She is responsible for assisting non-relative and relative caregivers in becoming licensed foster parents for children placed in their care through the child welfare system. Bridget was adopted at 13-years-old and believes this has given her a lot of insight and helps her relate to how some of our children feel.

Bridget remembers when she was starting out in the field of social work and offers this advice to any new social workers: Prepare yourself mentally for this field. Take as many mental health breaks as you need and don’t get lost in trying to change things you cannot control.

When Bridget isn’t working, she can be found spending quality time with her 11-month-old son, JD. She says “He is my biggest blessing. I couldn’t imagine my life without him.”

We recognize your hard work, Bridget. We appreciate all you do for the families in our community.
